How Long Can A Succulent Survive Without Soil Or Water?


Look at all these lollies here! Well, lollies is another! Uh, what we call lollies are what we call candy here in Australia in Ausland. Hello there. My name is Liz. A self-confessed, succulent addict. Welcome to my channel growing succulents. So that is a bloody Maria beautiful bloody Maria. Look at that, That’s actually leaf grown. Those are my babies! Did I put a date on you? As to, I know, it’s a couple of years, but, uh, that’s all grown from a leaf those two and look at it. This different. Look, so that one, it’s more red and that one just centers just like all red, and now it’s flowering and I they were leaving up the top of my shelf outside and I. Oh, sorry and I just put them in here now because I want to repot them, and this one is, what are you. Uh, I have skedicary eye. So are you scared to carry eye? Yeah, you are so decided you put a label on you because you are just called. Just you look at the colors. It’s like pink. So really, really, really, really pink, look at that. I have to cover because the wind again. Oh, my goodness, the wind. And now this one is called warfield. Wonder I wonder why, okay, warfield? Wonder this one is a rognoni eye. It’s really like yellow like not green. I I can see the screen is sort of green. I don’t know if it’s going to come out yellow, but that is more yellow, and this one is called a chavarria nightfall, so this is like another variation or tissue culture of bloody Maria over here and look at the gorgeous color. So this is bloody Maria. That is nightfall, and that one is I think is halfway between these two. So there you go and then look, look at that. Look how dark it is. It’s like, almost, um, purple sort of a dark purple color and they are all flowering. So that is like purple, Violet, Sweet Violet! Okay, and why did I come here? Yes, the reason. Why is because I’m going to show you some cuttings that I’ve taken at the beginning of June? This is now September second week of September, the first week or second week of June. But it’s about that time before the frost. We already had the frost, and so I decided to pull some of my imbrikata out, look at that, and they have been consuming the back leaves. So that’s why you see all those dry leaves there. And so they have grown out of the soil for three months. Uh, they’ve been sitting here and lets. Check out that one. Look at that. See the new roots forming. Okay, let’s go do that one here. New roots formation. So it’s time to put them in the garden and I have to go and clean up the garden. Now this is a sedum clavatum. This serum clavatum. Uh, they have broken off. I actually chopped them off. From my other sedum clavatum that I’ve been growing. They actually smell nice. If you smell them? Okay, they smell very nice, but this this one’s now okay so. When I plucked this out, it was only that plant there in the center and this flower now does a flower head. That’s a growing. That’s another flower one. Uh, they just popped out and then these two as well wasn’t there. They weren’t even a twinkle in the mother’s eye. I like using that phrase, but they just popped out as well while they are in hibernation. So now it’s time for them to, uh, be potted up because that one now is actually got a root. See, so no watering, no, nothing they will continue to grow while they are off there. You go so three months, not potted up and they are growing. Okay, so look at that. All those babies look at, that’s crazy, so I got one two three that I can pull out of there, Plus those two heads as well when they flower up, you can actually pull them out like that and stick them in the ground like that one there. So that plant there started life. You can see that started life like a little bit of flower like this, so it will grow and look at all the babies as well so, um, so they do grow and this one has been here for much longer. I actually pulled this out at the in autumn, So this is probably at least four months. This, uh, echeveria blue metal. If probably not, uh, it’s if not, it’s longer than that. I think. Yeah, end of autumn. I pulled them out of the soil of the ground and then left them here. I put it up. I mean, I put the other ones in my garden, but these two were left here so all the time they’ve been out of the pot or not planted and they’re growing because during winter, they’re asleep, so when they’re asleep, they don’t grow and even when, uh, what they call this even when you just bought them. Okay, just like this one’s, so you can leave them there to dry out, so this is. I just done this last night so there I let them dry out to remove the soil because I don’t like the peat. Moss, that’s they’re in and so I’m gonna plant that, okay, so this aloe here when I got this, see how the roots is sticking out of the air so it has survived all this time. This is actually beautiful plant, and I just threw it in there in that box here. Okay, with all my other rubbish and and look at this, I’m going to pull him out again or poor thing getting tortured all the time. Look at that. So it started forming root at the base of it. See, And there’s a tiny little snail. Look, so that one now I can plant that, uh, in a pot and that would be, uh, beautiful and so if I planted the roots in, that would actually encourage it to grow more babies. And then this one is scrub the sedum Francesco Baldi, they’ve been off! Uh, the ground. Although I pulled them out about seven months ago February. Can you believe that even this one here look at that? And it’s still alive. It’s still alive, see I was. I’ve been meaning to pop them up, but then, um, there are other things. I need to do, okay since I’ve got this pot here. I’m just going to dig them up here. Put that there now, so as to encourage it to grow. So there you go and that way, so even that one look awesome, beautiful, that’s gorgeous, okay, so this is actually. What are you, a viola there? You go, that’s a another succulent there you go, and and that’s it, folks. Yes, they will grow or they will survive. Um, even if they’re not planted in the ground or in the soil. Okay, So now that one, I’ll just put that there. Okay, So at least now they can grow a little bit, but this one is gorgeous. Look at that’s a, um, Pumula. I think, but it’s a beautiful pumila, so I need to harvest them. Oh, that’s a secunda. Sorry, Secunda. See the little tips there and this one. Are you a secunda two? Let me see yes. You are so there’s the kundas. Oh, who cares Cumula secunda? Uh, they’re very similar. Oh, I forgot this one. This is the mirror, hello. Mira, it’s already got a flower See and still got no roots. The leaves are soft and look how thin it is, see. The center of it is still healthy and look at this one. See, this one is even flowering. Aha, so this is not ooh a, uh, embry-cutter. This is actually a what are you or are you hots pink? Yeah, this is at spin, grab. The varia has pink and look at it. Its flowering. So this one is the same plant as that and look at it. Look how big it is now and look how tiny that one is. So they’re the same plant, and it’s also flowering that one. And are you gonna share? Look, the tip of that one now is pink, and this one is all like green and yellow. It’s got pink. The stem is pink. But, you know, this is how long it can survive without water for three months, and the leaves are all soft, so it’s time for you to get planted in the garden.
